After her collaboration with upcycling whizz Duran Lantink last season, the Paris-based Australian designer Kym Ellery, dubbed Ellery in Paris, unveiled her Fall/Winter achingly cool collection but wearable wardrobe aspiring Parisians wish they could assemble.

This collection was made 90% with upcycled raw materials to focus on sustainable production and a circular economy: soft oversized knits, luscious silks, repurposed lurex bouclés, vegan faux-leathers and fun bursts of recycled vinyl and shiny lamé.
Silhouettes were crisp cut and feature high and low waists, midi skirts, ankle-length coats, as well as the brand’s signature bold masculine tailoring. The collection played with Parisian codes: tweed, subtle sexiness and a wardrobe that feels mysterious yet is easy to wear and combine.
And the color palette, described as “lemon curd, cashew cream, poached pear, roasted almond, rich ganache, black sesame, and charcoal glazing” with “sprinkles of raw cacao and cinnamon and a trickle of fresh raspberry jam” implied urgent desire for hipster patisserie or sounded like a macaron flavor list.
